You must have heard that Nigeria is in search for a new Head after Oliseh exit so … we have new. The Nigeria Football Federation has confirmed the appointment of Paul Le Guen as the new Nigeria Super Eagles coach after he was recommended by the technical committee on Monday evening.
The 52-year-old succeeds Sunday Oliseh, who left the post after his failed expedition at the 2016 African Nations Championship failing to get past the preliminary round.
He will be assisted by Salisu Yusuf who takes the role of chief coach with Imama Amapakabo and Alloy Agu serving as assistant coach and goalkeeper trainer respectively.
Le Guen’s first challenge is against Tanzania in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in September – though the Super Eagles had lost the ticket to Egypt.
In other news … It is being said that the French man has rejected/has not accepted the offer based on NFFs somewhat issues. Frenchman insists the country’s FA (NFF) yet to meet terms & conditions to be coach.
So while we are still thinking if he is the best man for the job, we still have to wonder of NFF will make it happen or is this is a sign that there will be problem again down the road?
